maternity session - $350
Maternity session fees include the initial phone intake, consultation (preferably in person), as well as wardrobe assistance, advice if needed and discussion of what your vision is for both your maternity and newborn sessions. This fee covers the time and talent of your photographer as I pose and photograph the ultimate joy of your pregnancy then painstakingly edit your images into final proofs and then sit with you quietly during a proof reviewing session. Included in your session fee is either a gorgeous 8x8 10-image album or a $200 print credit to use toward the purchase of prints and products from your maternity session. * Maternity sessions are only available as an add-on to a newborn session.
Since birthing is such a delicate and private time, your session fee includes an in person consultation during which we will discuss your vision for your labor, what role you would like me to play as your photographer and your comfort level of what you would like photographed. Your birthing session includes being “on call” for that final moment, getting up in the middle of the night if needed, the time spent with you and your family during hours of labor, talent of your photographer as I photograph this awe-inspiring event yet seemingly blend into the background of your birthing, then meticulously edit your photographs into final proofs. Birthing sessions include all digital images on CD, 20 custom designed birth announcements with a digital image to share and a newborn session either the same or next day at your home or hospital bedside * Birthing Sessions are available for home births only or where permission from the delivering physician has been given in writing.
Newborn sessions typically run 2-4+ hours.

The Session fee also includes the time and talent of your photographer as I patiently pose and photograph your baby then meticulously edit your photographs for hours after your session and then sit with you quietly during a proof reviewing session. Newborn sessions should be scheduled at around the 5-6th month of pregnancy based on due date and should be taken between 8-10 days of life.

Because I feel that everyone deserves high quality custom photography to capture the miracle of your children’s lives, I have developed mini-sessions for those on a budget. Mini-sessions typically run 15-20 minutes and includes roughly 8-10 final proofs. They include an initial phone intake, but do not include a consultation of wardrobe etc. Mini-sessions include all the fun and laughter in my full sessions just for a shorter amount of time. Prints and products are still purchased separately and a $70 minimum print/product investment is required on all mini-sessions. There is no proof reviewing session with mini-sessions. All prints/products must be purchased from my password secure website and will ship directly to your home (shipping fees apply).
Typically you will require two appointments; one for the photo shoot and one "review" session to view your photos with me and place your print/product order. These appointments will be scheduled during your initial phone intake. All sessions include a password protected online gallery of all images to make it convenient for you, your family members, or friends to view the proofs and purchase additional portraits as well if so desired.
All Session fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and are due at the time you set up your appointment. This guarantees your appointment time will be held for you. If they are not received at least one week prior to your session, your appointment will be cancelled. Session fees are transferable should you need to reschedule your appointment due to illness etc.
